2011-12 Top 30 Salary Cap Numbers – Center


List below are the Top 30 Salary Cap Numbers for centers heading into the 2011-12 NHL season. Due to front-loading contracts (back-loaded in some cases), and teams having to deal with the salary cap, a players cap number takes precedence over their actual salary.

    Interesting list (how ridiculous does Brad Richard’s contract look now?

    Also, I’m not sure that Cammalleri qualifies as a center…

  2. #2 by Mark Easson at August 25th, 2011

    He doesn’t, switched him over to the Top LW page that is coming up tomorrow. RW, Defensemand and Goalies will follow on Sat. – Mon.

    Before someone comes on and comments about this, Staal may not be worth that much market value-wise, but he sure as hell is worth that much to the Canes organization. Ask anyone in the Canes front office, they’re all pleased with that deal…

    Awesome, thanks Mark – love the page.

    Way better than that hockeybuzz bulls***. :)
